Songfacts®:

  • Keith "Chief Keef" Cozart was born in Chicago when his mother was 16. Cozart's rap career began when he was under house arrest for a weapons charge, during which he posted several videos to his YouTube account. He then released a series of mixtapes on his own record label Glory Boys Entertainment, which created a buzz before the single "I Don't Like" became his first Hot 100 hit. This is his second single, which was produced by frequent collaborator Young Chop.
  • The song finds the rapper boasting how "All women love" Chief Keef aka BigGucciSosa and "Glo' Boys" aka his crew Glory Boyz.

  • The Dgainz directed music video was shot on October 18, 2012 in the Loft in the 100s neighborhood of the South Side of Chicago.

  • Anonymous from Chicago Sosa nickname actually is based on the Chicago Cubs baseball Sammy Sosa Understand me lyrics “b**** my name is Sosa you can call me Sammy”
  • Anonymous from AtlantaLove Sosa by Chief Keef is not about Sammy Sosa the baseball player. It is about Sosa the guy who went after Tony Montana in Scarface and killed him at the end. Good Grief
